Nicholas James is Two Months!

Baby Nicholas turned two months on Saturday and he is getting bigger every day! I mean he was big to begin with but now he is practically toddler sized. 

Ok I am exaggerating just a bit but he really is a big boy. He had his doctors appointment today and weighted 15 lbs 7 oz and is 24 inches long! Marlee was nowhere near that size by two months. He is 100% healthy though which is all that really matters. I just pretend that I am losing more weight by carrying around a 15 lb weight all day.  

He is still a fussy little baby but it is getting better. It seems that the fussiness has peaked and I am learning his signs and signals. I actually was able to get him to lay down for a nap three times yesterday which is unheard of! One of the naps was while Marlee was also napping so you can only imagine my excitement. I was able to pay bills and drink my morning cup of coffee which had since gone cold. 
Being an adult is fun. Sike. 

Regardless, he is sleeping around 4-6 hours a night and is out of our bed! I would like to put him in his crib but since he and Marlee are in the same room, I do not want to wake the princess at night. If there is one thing I have going for me, it is that Marlee is a great sleeper! Now if I could get Nicholas on board. 

Nicholas is not a binky lover but does enjoy the white noise machine which is in the playpen next to his nest. He still loves to be carried around but spends little bits of time on his play mat and in his swing. He is smiling more and more everyday and loooves to be talked to. It is pretty darn adorable. 

He does look a lot like his sister but looks even more like his dad - blue eyes, fair skinned, and a smile that you cannot help but smile back at. 

Our photo shoot did not exactly go as planned for several reasons. 1. He is a fussy baby. 2. He was hungry and we were in a hurry. 3. Marlee Jo wanted in on the action.




I still was able to get some cute shots of baby boy...


and a few of my princess.



Even Isaac got in on the photo shoot!


He is a perfect addition to our little family.
